Classic Military Aircraft is a comprehensive guide to the world's fighting aircraft from the beginning of World War I to the end of World War II. Packed with fascinating information, this book covers an array of biplane, triplane and monoplane designs, from World War I scouts, through the dead ends and unusual prototypes of the interwar years, to high-powered World War II aircraft such as the P-51 Mustang and Supermarine Spitfire.

Aircraft featured include World War I legends such as the Fokker Dr.I triplane flown by the Red Baron, the timeless SPAD XIII, and British stalwarts of the Western Front including the Sopwith Pup and R.A.F. RE.8. Early World War II types include the Hawker Hurricane and Messerschmitt Bf 109. Veterans of the Pacific war featured include the Grumman F4F Wildcat and B-29 Superfortress

Classic Military Aircraft contains detailed spreads on more than 220 combat aircraft from more than 30 years of aviation. Each aircraft is covered in detail, with feature boxes outlining its development, technical specifications, performance data, and variants. Unique graphics allow the reader to compare specific features such as firepower, troop-carrying capacity, and bombload against other aircraft of the same type.
